This chapter analyses the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill and its impact on police authority. It describes the events leading up to the passage of the bill and the provisions that made the most changes in law enforcement authority. It examines the first ever Police and Crime Commissioner elections in November 2012 and describes how the low turnout of the election harmed the credibility of the whole process. The chapter also pays attention to the possibility of the law enforcement becoming too political as an outcome of the idea of holding elections.

Keywords:   Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill, British law enforcement, police authority, Police and Crime Commissioner elections
